Independent film seeks local extras
BARSTOW • Producers of an independent feature film shooting overnight at the Skyline Drive-In seek 30 to 40 local extras.
The movie “Too Late” is scheduled to shoot two nights — Wednesday, Sept. 11 and Thursday, Sept. 12 — and wrap up filming each night early in the morning, according to Production Manager Rachel Luskin.
An extra’s availability for both days is preferred, although not required, and each night of filming is expected to last 11 to 12 hours, Luskin wrote in an email.
Extras must be over 18 years old to participate and all ethnicities are welcome. Each extra will receive a $40 per day stipend in addition to meals provided on set.
“Too Late” will feature actor John Hawkes, who recently was nominated for an Academy Award for his role in “Winter’s Bone,” according to Internet Movie Database.
Other actors involved with the project include: Crystal Reed, Jeff Fahey and Rider Strong.
The film will be directed by Dennis Hauck.
“The movie reveals in non-linear fashion the tangled relationship between a troubled private investigator and the missing woman he’s hired to help find,” Luskin wrote.
Anthony Riley, city spokesman and director of the Barstow Film Office, said Friday that the two-day shoot was another step in the right direction for the community.
“We are thrilled to have a film of this caliber shooting here in Barstow,” Riley said.
